Colorado two-way star Travis Hunter made headlines this week. The Buffaloes wide receiver/defensive back, formerly the top-ranked recruit in the country, has signed a massive NIL deal ahead of his team’s Week 3 game against Colorado State on Saturday. Hunter reportedly signed in with fitness drink company Celsius

On3 NIL posted, “Colorado two-way star Travis Hunter re-signed his NIL deal with Celsius for the remainder of the 2023 season.

“He’s played 274 snaps in only two games this year. Hunter holds a $1.8 million On3 NIL Valuation.”

Hunter is part of a talented Colorado team that has taken the college football world by storm. While it was originally deemed improbable because of their level of roster turnover, many expect the Buffaloes to contend for a College Football Playoff championship, and Hunter will be a huge part of that.

While the deal was announced, no financial terms on the agreement were disclosed by either On3 or from Celsius.

Congrats, nonetheless, to the Colorado star on making the move.
